Ben Nevis via CMD arête

Guided rock-scrambling day on 'Ledge Route' and Carn Mor Dearg arête

Above Fort William mighty Ben Nevis dominates the view. At well over 4,000ft high, this mountain is the highest in the land. 

 

Most people take the 'tourist path' to Ben Nevis's summit and never see the dramatic north face of the mountain which delights rock-scramblers and challenges climbers. Nearby, Carn Mor Dearg another 4,000ft plus mountain is linked to Ben Nevis via the narrow curving crest of the Carn Mor Dearg arête.

Pap of Glencoe

 

Guided hike with light scrambling  in Glencoe

 

 

The Pap of Glencoe is not a Munro, but its presence dominates the landscape. Despite the challenging Aonach Eagach ridge next to it and the huge buttresses of Bidean nam Bian across Glencoe, it still manages to reward all who walk up it with the sense they have been up a first-class mountain.

 

The fantastic views begin almost immediately, in part because the steepness of the path means you gain height quickly – you might need to stop to catch your breath. And once on the 2,434ft summit, you will find one of the best places in Scotland to enjoy a packed lunch. Savour this walk – it is one of the very best anywhere.
